Eames Plastic DAW Armchair
Charles Eames and the Plastic DSR Side Chair
The Eames’ Plastic Chair collection has become one of their most well-known and desirable designs. These chairs were the first example of a one-piece seat made from moulded plastic, a material previously unknown in the furniture industry. The chairs debuted at the ‘Low-Cost Furniture Design’ competition at MOMA in 1948, and two years later the Plastic Armchair and the Plastic Side Chair launched on the market as the first mass-produced plastic chairs in history.
In nearly 70 years of their production, little else has rivalled the Eames’ design for a simple chair, contoured to the body, easily produced yet graceful and stylish.
